Plans for a major investment in hospital facilities for the future in Jersey will be outlined to Islanders at a series of public drop-in meetings.
Five meetings will be held across a range of locations, offering the chance to talk to politicians and senior managers from the Health and Social Services Department, Jersey Property Holdings and the Treasury Department.
The plans to invest £297million in new hospital facilities, providing a comprehensive long-term answer to Jersey’s future healthcare needs, were revealed by the Treasury Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, in his Budget Statement on 8 October.
Islanders will have the chance to find out more about the Future Hospital proposals at the following drop-in meetings:
• Thursday 7 November, St Brelade’s Parish Hall (4- 7.30pm)
• Thursday 14 November, Grouville Parish Hall (4- 7.30pm)
• Wednesday 20 November, RJA&HS Showground, Trinity (4- 7.30pm)
• Thursday 28 November, St Helier Town Hall (12.30- 2pm)
• Thursday 28 November, St Helier Town Hall (4- 7.30pm)
Members of the public are encouraged to attend at any time during the advertised hours. Outline plans and artist’s impressions will be on display and there will also be the opportunity to see a short video presentation and raise questions or concerns with those involved with the project.
“The Future Hospital plans are only outline proposals at this stage, but this is a massive project that will potentially impact everyone on the Island,” said Julie Garbutt, Chief Executive for Health and Social Services. “We hope plenty of Islanders will come and take a closer look at what is proposed.”
